I have seen them at a local hobby shop for about $140ish. I would go with a Lama or CX2 because of the aftermarket parts availalble.

I saw them at the Chicago Hobby Show for $100. That is all they're worth from what I saw. There just like an Esky or Walkera with different bodies. Parts support is unknown.

Nine Eagles Helicopters

There are currently 48 hobby shops selling the Nine Eagles helicopters in the US and Canada. This will grow to over 300 by mid-summer. They do and will all have the full line of replacement parts.
Hobby shops have been ordering the Nine Eagles products because the testing that they and their helicopter experts performed came up with the unanimous verdict that Nine Eagles makes the most powerful, stable and maneuverable stock helicopters in their class. I know this sounds like the typical sales pitch from a product rep, but we receive this same response every day as a result of the samples we send out to our dealer network. Our only negative response from dealers has been they feel they will not be selling as many replacement parts, since they have also found them to be more durable. This is also the response that the authors of reviews in the magazines have been giving. The reviews have been so positive that my brother Bob and I were afraid the public will think we have paid people under the table to write them. Honestly, all we did was send two helicopters, with no other information, to each of four magazines. They did all the rest.
When I first saw the Nine Eagles helicopters at the iHobby show last year, my first response (to the Night Eagle) was "Boy, is that ugly". It wasn't until I saw the Explorer that I felt they had possiblities. When we got back home and flew them, we knew they were winners. We have found that some people even like the body style of the Night Eagle, but we do have bodies made to our specifications that are in the works.

send me one to test and see if my LHS will carry them. Also a review would certainly be posted to this board. any damage incurred to the machine will come out of my pocket(i dont crash).


are they made in China or Japan?


Walkera and Esky are rubbish in my opinion...

In the videos I've seen it appears much more stable than a Lama or CX. Of course, that's often just a really well set up heli and very good pilot.

Yes that is how I got onto this link, saw them in that magazine. No you have to remember good reviews bring in the ads and the bucks.

I got into flying the V3 because of the first issue of this magazine. Picked it up at the supermarked when grocery shopping.
